Deployment and Professional Services

Engine Yard has an amazing Support team, but certain things fall outside the scope of what Support covers. Those tasks are handled by our expert Professional Services team. Below is a list of our standard offerings. If you don’t see what you need, please inquire, as we can likely find someone on our team with the expertise needed to deliver a custom solution.

Services Offered

Craig Bennett


“I’m so grateful we had Engine Yard during those times,” “It was the first major multi-retailer sale event where we’ve had no worries about running at sufficient scale. There was no backlog of processing and all orders were processed promptly. We got a lot of really nice comments from customers on how fast the platform was. It was extraordinary for us — brilliant.”

CJ Johnson

Chief Technical Officer Co-Founder

“We rely on Engine Yard to deliver a flexible, reliable platform with a rock-solid stack, so we don’t have to invest in building internal resources and hiring an ops team. Even with our customized configurations, Engine Yard makes it easy to deploy – we just click a button. We go from development to staging to production with all of our focus on building a great product.”

Kiran Darisi

Director Technical Operations

“We didn’t have a dedicated DevOps team at the start, so we chose Engine Yard to run our highly scalable help desk application. This allowed us to focus on building new features, and we released our pre-beta software in three months – without Engine Yard, it would have taken at least double that time. Engine Yard support and professional services are exceptional. They are quick to respond and provide their expertise on everything from stack updates to database support and chef recipes.”

Sankara Rameswaran

Principal Architect

“EngineYard is a great partner for running our infrastructure. We are a really small team of engineers, yet we have the same kind of infrastructure as a company with excellent resources. With Engine Yard, we get deployment, monitoring, recovery, and scaling. Essentially, they are our extended DevOps team.”
